Boscia Oil-Free Daily Hydration SPF 15

RATING (out of 5 stars): 2 stars
COST:
$36 for 1.4 ounces

THE SKINNY: I really, really wanted to like this daytime moisturizer. I mean, in reading just the description who wouldn’t?

It contains natural anti-irritants and antitoxins and is touted to provide “weightless hydration as it controls excess oil, minimizes the look of pores and protects skin from future damage with broad-spectrum SPF 15 protection.”

Awesome, right? Good for your skin and good for the planet.

But I just didn’t like the lotion.

First of all, it smelled funny. Like plants. Flowers or herbs would be OK. But smelling leafy is just kind of weird.

Second, it really didn’t do much to make my skin feel softer, smoother or really even protected.

So for $36 a bottle, I’ll pass.

KEEP OR TOSS:
Use the free sample. Don’t buy the big bottle.
